                          • Good location annd value, friendly stuff and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. My room was very quiet, restaurant food was really nice.

                            The tired decor, poor showers and drinks expensive for 2 pints around 12euros. Dinner not much better.

                          • Convenient for city centre and lovely Garden of Remembrance across the road. I loved the decor and great staff. Room was very cosy and food was very good.

                            T stay shut, old charming Victorian building and the water in the bathroom was barely luke warm. The sheets were also dirty and breakfast was poor.

                          • Position and friendly staff, very convenient for O'Connell Street, i liked the decor and style. Totally worth money and the decorations is great. The rooms are well furnished and the breakfasts are good.

                            The hotel is tired and tv very old and picture not very clear, no remote.

                          • The location is very central and the hotel is very well situated for sightseeing. The lobby is very beautiful, the staff are all very friendly and checkout at 12 meant no mad rushing round on your last morning. Rooms fair sized and and the free breakfast is excellent.

                            One, a particularly virulent antsemitic site was unavailable to residents and bathroom was dirty.

                            The breakfast was extremely busy.

                          • Location close to Parnell Square is only a short stroll to city centre and the Hotel is Edwardian in construction and has lots of romantic charm. Staff are pleasant and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable.

                            Breakfast was very busy.

                          • Lovely bar and restaurant area, is excellently sound proofed, the location of this hotel is fine. Staff are polite and helpful, the beds are comfortable and everything is very clean. Live music are great fun.

                            Good value overall, considering expensive Dublin can be and floors between rooms are paper thin.

                          • Great location for walking to tourist sites in Dublin and not bad value. Friendly efficient staff at reception, comfortable beds and breakfast was included in our roomrate and seemed to be for most other guests as well.

                            Rooms a little dated and tv is almost same size as my mobile phone screen.

                          • The location is excellent for the city centre, great place for a weekend break and reception and diningroom staff could not have been more helpful. Adequate tea/coffee in the room, multi channel tv, the breakfast is very good.
